for constant runny nose (Chronic Rhinitis)
Disease State: Chronic Rhinitis
- Patients who suffer from allergic and non-allergic rhinitis as well as congestion.
- Patients who suffer from rhinitis that is concomitant with Sinusitis.
for nasal airway obstruction (think permanent breath right strips)
Disease State: Nasal Airway Obstruction (Nasal Valve Collapse)
- Patients who suffer from Nasal Airway Obstruction have 3 key anatomical features that can be addressed:
- Deviated Septum
- Hypertrophic Turbinate’s
- Nasal Valve Collapse
- Nasal Valve Collapse occurs when there’s a narrowing of the airway accompanied with weak upper and lower lateral cartilage.
minimally invasive sinus surgery
Disease State: Sinusitis
- Chronic sinusitis takes a massive toll on the individuals who suffer from it. Studies show that patients with chronic sinusitis score lower in quality of life measures of bodily pain and social functioning than patients with congestive heart failure, angina, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or back pain. Symptoms include headache, facial pain, runny nose, and nasal congestion.
Solution: Balloon Sinus Dilation
- A minimally invasive way to open up blocked sinuses. The physician uses the ball tip seeker on the balloon to access the sinus that needs to be dilated, and then the balloon inflates 6 mm to open up those sinuses. This can be done standalone (typically offered in the clinic setting) or as a “tool” when physicians are doing more complex FESS cases.

for patients that have had tube after tube and still suffer- is now a way to treat the source of the issue
Disease State: Eustachian Tube Dysfunction
- Patients who suffer from pressure, ringing, “clogged”, or muffled hearing in the ears. ETD also persists concomitantly with sinusitis patients.
Solution: Eustachian Tube Dilation
- ET Dilation with the XprESS Balloon device targets the cartilaginous portion of the ET that has become inflamed. The dilation causes the damaged mucosal lining to “slough” off upon treatment allowing new, healthy mucosal lining to generate.
